 ROUGET, BERNARD, PHOTOGRAPHER, Esquisse D'Un Portrait de la Marocaine
Esquisse D'Un Portrait de la Marocaine
19. ROUGET, Bernard, photographer, et al. ESQUISSE D'UN PORTRAIT DE LA MAROCAINE. [N.p. n.d. but perhaps Casablanca: Societe Shell du Maroc, circa 1950-1960]. Text in French. [16] pp. essay by Francois Bonjean, illustrated by Edy Legrand, accompanied by a group of 8 black and white photographs by Bernard Rouget showing Moroccan women and girls in traditional dress, and a group of 8 color lithographs reproducing line drawings by Edy Legrand showing the same. The photographs are silver gelatin prints, 11 3/4 by 9 1/4 inches, and five have Rouget's stamp on verso. All (text, photos, & lithos) are in fine condition and housed loose, as issue, in an illustrated paper portfolio. The portfolio shows some edgewear and has been carefully mended/strengthened internally, with remnants of a glassine cover laid in. Before the essay begins, there is a brief statement that the portfolio was produced at the initiative of the Societe Shell du Maroc and that the lithographs were printed in Casablanca. It is also implied that there were to be a limited number of these portfolios, because there is a space marked to number the copy, though no number has been given to this copy and no limitation is indicated. This copy is inscribed in English on the first page "to Ramzy Rizk with affectionate regards from the management and employees of Esso Standard Maroc." Risk was an employee of Exxon (Esso) for over 39 years. Ill.: LEGRAND, Edy.

Isaiah West Taber (1830-1912) was one of the most well known American photographers in California and the West in the late 19th century. His clients included Queen Victoria, seven U.S. presidents, Enrico Caruso, Lily Langtry and Sarah Bernhardt. A collection of his photographs of noted Californians was donated to the California State Museum. His studio in San Francisco also produced a series of stereoscopic views of western scenery. The studio, along with all of his glass negatives, was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake.(Kurutz p.20) Muir Glacier, formerly the most famous of the tidewater glaciers, once rose 256 ft. above the water and was nearly 2 miles wide. It has been receding since the late 18th century and no longer reaches the sea. .
